Céad Míle Fáilte ~ A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

Here we seek a rest in the shade, some cool water and a little kindness. This blog is dedicated to peace, truth, justice and a post- industrial, post-petroleum illumined world in spite of all odds against it. I very much like the line about the ancient knight (see poem below) "His helmet now shall make a hive for bees" It is reminiscent of "beating swords into ploughshares" a sentiment I heartily approve of. Thank you for visiting ~ I hope you return!

Hooray For Roundbouts!

Any readers who happen to stray in to TRT from the Auld Sod, aka The Continent, will think I have gone round the bend, but I am happy to announce that Lincoln, Nebraska is getting a new roundabout! I am a big fan of the nonconventional traffic control patterns mainly because they are so simple that even if a tornado or blizzard whips through town and douses the electricity for hours or days, they, unlike trafic lights, still work just fine without any traffic cops. This will be our first roundabout big enough to handle 18-wheelers.
